Cissy Houston on Oprah’s Next Chapter

This video from Oprah’s Next Chapter is a must see. Cissy Houston, the mother of Whitney Houston, pretty much outs her own daughter. And her rigid views on Homosexuality and her relationship with friend/lover Robin lead Whitney to increased drug usage! It’s terribly sad! đŸ˜¦

Cissy Houston Addresses Rumors About Whitney Houston’s Sexuality
When Whitney Houston was 16, she met Robyn, the woman who would become her best friend. From the start, Whitney’s mother, Cissy, says she was critical of their relationship. For years, rumors persisted that Robyn and Whitney were involved in a romantic relationship—something both women repeatedly denied. Now, Cissy addresses the speculation and reveals why she wouldn’t have condoned a lesbian relationship.

Kaldrick and Tariq – LA Complex

I don’t watch much scripted TV, but for the last few months, i’ve been hooked to a Canadian show called L.A. Complex. Overall, the show is ok but the gay storyline between Kal (Andra Fuller) and Tariq (Benjamin Watson) is the meat of the show. Not only was a gay storyline but a storyline with believable gay black men!

Season 2 has been about Kal’s journey accepting the fact he is gay. I must say the writing for his storyline has been on point. And mad kudos to the writers for possibly writing the best ending (i hope not) for Kal’s as he addressed his fans.

If you haven’t seen the show, I suggest you go to youtube and type “Kal and Tariq” and look at all their clips. Andra Fuller’s role as Kaldrick King is just exceptional. He should be winning awards!

Here is the the final two episodes for this seasons just featuring the scenes with Kal. The last 5 min of the 20 min video are the most powerful.

For Colored Girls

I’m so not a fan of Tyler Perry. His work is elementary at best and his playing up the role like he is str8 is laughable.

Well his next movie based on the play “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf” by Ntozake Shange is drawing much attention…both good and bad. Mainly bad being that 1) he took the movie from a sister who already had the rights to produce it and 2) his string of movies have been borderline “coonish”!
So, I think he knows, that if he flops on this one, his career will begin to wane. This play is something serious and to be turned into a movie alone is a piece of work.
Anyway, the official posters for each of the women in the movie have been released.
The movie will be released on Nov. 5th.

Laurence Fishburne’s Daughter and …Brian Pumper?

Yes!!! You read the title right. This story is still somewhat under the radar but it is quickly coming to light around entertainment circles. The eldest daughter of well renowned actor Laurence Fishburne (i.e. “School Daze”, “Matrix”, “What’s Love Got to Do With It” & more) is breaking out in porn. Yes Porn!. I’m not knocking porn and people who want to do it, but being that I’m the child of probably one of the most recognized black male actors and you want to have a career in porn is a bit …mmm I don’t even know where to begin. LOL. It’s now come to light she was arrested for prostitution back when she was 16. WOW. Talk about a dysfunctional home life! Now there is rumors he is part of an occult and may have molested her as a child. We shall see if that part of the story ever comes out!

Anyway, Montana Fishburne will have her porn debut with legendary porn star Brian Pumper. Well I give her kudos for at least getting with an A list porn start.
Check out this video (which is NFSW) with Brian Pumper and Montana, who’s stage name will be “Chippy D”…yes…”Chippy D”…let’s not even go there on that. LOL. Watching this video, you can tell both aren’t dealing with a full deck of cards. And is it me, but is Brian Pumper really letting folks know he is a switch hitter. LOL. Real talk. I mean the body language, tone of his voice, etc. and I saw this and I’m like “Oh yea, that brother is getting fucked DOWN”. lol
